One of just five players to win the Conn Smythe despite losing the Stanley Cup final is officially hanging ’em up.

J.S. Giguere will announce his retirement next week, according to TSN. The decision will mark the end of a solid 16-year career in which Giguere posted 262 wins in 597 NHL games, boasting a career .913 save percentage and 2.52 GAA.

Giguere, 37, enjoyed his greatest success with the Anaheim organization, backstopping the Ducks to the Cup Final in 2003 (when he won the Conn Smythe after being defeated by the Devils) and the club’s first and only championship in 2007.

Giguere also spent time with the Leafs, Flames and Avalanche.
